1. Obtain your MSL
2. open the dialer and enter ##data#
3. Tap LTE and select edit
4. Enter your MSL
5. Select BSRTimer (defaults to 3000) and change the value to 3
6. Press back, phone should reboot
7. Profit

*does not require root

After doing this, I'm back to nearly constant LTE connectivity, where prior to the fix I was on 3g almost every time I checked.
When I tried to edit the field, it automatically changed to a 3 in the edit field. I wonder if they just screwed up the units. 3000 would imply milliseconds, which would be a problem if the field is actually in seconds (3000 seconds = 50 minutes).

is this only for ZVD?
I am still on ZVC and I default to 3G A LOT... distinctly more than I did before ZVC...
I just checked and my BSRTimer is already at 3...is there anything else I could poke around at?

Yep, specific fix for a bug introduced in ZVD. if you are on a different version, then it must be some other problem. You might try posting in the Q&A forum.

I am running Affliction ROM which is on ZVD. This ROM has the 'Permanent LTE mod' enabled.
Just getting curious, I poked around in the LTE BSR Timer setting and found mine is currently set to '0'.
One thing I have noticed since installing the ROM, I am almost ALWAYS on LTE, which is expected since I assume permanent means permanent.

Guess what I am getting at, is I am wondering if setting it to '0' is what the 'Permanent LTE mod' really is/does....anyone have any idea? Because if it is that easy, this may help out a whole lot of people.

BTW, please nobody try doing this until we have a concrete answer.

It's possible although I suspect a setting of 0 may increase battery drain in areas with weak LTE signals.
